The Value of the Symbiota Portal and Database for Small Collections
Presenter: Ed Gilbert, Arizona State University
Description: Managing and maintaining collections databases in the face of little IT support or cyber infrastructure is a significant challenge for small collections. Symbiota portal software and its underlying database has proven a useful tool for surmounting these hurdles, especially for herbaria and entomological collections.  Wholly online, with no local software to install, Symbiota supports online entry or batch uploads of data, image storage and display, and tools that allow collections managers to control access by data technicians. This webinar will present an introduction to Symbiota, including how curators and collections managers can take advantage of existing Symbiota networks.
